BEAVER CREEK (Clay County). Beaver Creek rises two miles southwest of Ringgold in extreme eastern Clay County (at 33°45' N, 97°59' W) and flows northeast for fourteen miles, through eastern Clay and western Montague counties, before joining Belknap Creek two miles northwest of Belcherville (at 33°50' N, 97°52' W). The stream, intermittent through most of its course, traverses flat to rolling land surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, live oak, post oak, conifers, and grasses. For most of its history the Beaver Creek area has been used as crop and range land. At times minerals have been extracted near the banks.
